oh blogger - gah! after the great blogspot debacle of 2011, i had to take a break from the whole frustrating internet world this morning.  but then i started thinking about the things which i'm really excited about today and decided it was time to sit down and write my gratitude post.

here's what i'm thankful for today:
* that the mister bought a countertop dishwasher for us with his birthday money {having ocd means i'm the only one who can wash dishes, so that purchase was really a gift for me - sweetest man ever!}.
* that our dishwasher {which i have named "sir cleans-a-lot"} arrived an entire week early!
* that i have only had to wash two things by hand over the past couple days {sir cleans-a-lot is definitely the highlight of my week}.
moving on...
* having band practice with the entire joe gil band for the first time - it sounded incredible! i'm so excited for saturday night... at 10pm... hotel cafe {just in case you forgot}.
* for finishing a couple tasks on my to-do list which i have been putting off for weeks.
* for wet wipes {the ocd's best friend}.
* for an awesome stylist friend to play dress up with in preparation for the concert.
* for putting the "next" button on my bookmark tab bar. best thing to ever happen for blog reading!! thanks to red boots for discovering this {seriously, go here to learn more about it, you won't be sorry}!

{what i'll be drinking this weekend}

what are you thankful for this week?

ps - it's friday the 13th! [insert eery music here]


  1. HUGE FAIL, BLOGGER! yeesh! i hope it never happens again!

    and you are SERIOUSLY happy about that dishwasher. LOL!!! i didn't have one for seven years, and really didn't think it was a big deal. but i have one since then and it is a NICE thing. big time. love it. and i wouldn't REALLY want to do without one ever again!

    hope you have a fab weekend!

  2. Oh it is, ain't it? Creepy..

    I would be over the moon with a new dishwasher! My 1950's home is lacking one and that's a nice purchase/gift/lifesaver.. sweet of your hubby..

    Enjoy your weekend!

  3. Sounds like you've had quite a week which will be followed by a ton of amazingness! I so wish I could go to your concert!

    I'm thankful to possibilities!

  4. Yay for the dishwasher! Ours is one of my very favorite things about our house (tied with the fireplace and pool lol).

  5. Oh I am so happy for you. He sounds like a keeper, definitely.

  6. Sir Cleans A lot like Sir Mix A Lot?! :D Great!
    So happy you got that! Hotel Cafe? Where is that?! I hope you do amazing well on everything! I will go here to learn about the "next" button, because I am so confused now! :D

  7. I am thankful for chocolate and good weather :)

    Have a nice weekend

  8. I love the latte graphic- and the gratitude sentiment. Have a great weekend :)

  9. Lucky you guys with a dishwasher - we haven't got one either - I know with 2 kids right, so it's on my list of purchases, (but the list is long:)
    Good luck tonight Kim, can't wait to hear how it went - wish I lived in LA - Have fun sweets,
    A xx

  10. Sir Cleans a Lot seems like a really good guy, so happy he came to live with you:)
    Good luck on your concert, wish I could be there!

  11. I had no idea there were countertop dishwashers. Dannon is too sweet to spend his birthday money on that. Don't ever let him go. And have a blast at the concert tonight. I'll be there in spirit!

  12. Hi Kim, long time no see! Glad you decided to do your gratitude post. Countertop diswashers sound like an awesome idea and that is very sweet of the Mister to get you one... andddd have so much fun at the concert tonight! wish i could be there :)

  13. Yay for dishwashers! And I love that illustration. : )

    I hope you are having a lovely weekend!



  14. I'm thankful for the people around, they have really pulled through for me in the last while and I am forever grateful for that :)

  15. NO NO NO!! I haven't been on the blog circuit (or reading tweets) in days...busy, busy, busy. And I missed your show! :(
    I live so close to Hotel Cafe, too! And oddly, was thinking THIS PAST WEEK that it had been too long since I'd been there. If I had only checked blogger or twitter!! Ugh.
    Next time I will be there, FOR SURE!!

  16. Grrr blogger was annoying wasn't it? And it lost some of my comments - what's up with that, yo!

    I love dishwashers!

  17. I know, wasn't it ridiculous? And it took so long to fix!!!!

    That's so great that you got a dishwasher, washing dishes by hand is the worst.
    I wish I could come see you guys perform!!!

  18. Don't worry.... I was married on Friday the 13th and nothing bad has happened! yet.

  19. I know..what a downer !!! some posts and comments were even deleted. :(

    Can't wait for your updates on the show dear..yay !!

  20. Now that's one man I wouldn't kick out! Very excited for your dishwasher gift and very nice of the hubs (I don't have one in this apartment, though my last two did. Hard adjustment!)

    Hope you're enjoying your week and love the latte graphic, too!
